Usually, green lacewings
Chrysoperla externa (Hagen, 1861) are reared using cylindrical polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes measuring 10, 15 or 20cm in diameter, with varying heights (CARVALHO & SOUZA, 2009).

Scientists at CSIRO Entomology have learnt that silk made by the common Australian green lacewing

During a two-year study, entomologist T-X Liu and research assistant, Tian-Ye Chen, discovered that the green lacewing
is being destroyed by an insecticide meant to kill damaging pests.
In the last two years, European researchers have documented the ill effects of Bt crops on the lifespan and egg production of ladybugs, the survival of green lacewing
larvae, and the behavior of honeybees.
The green lacewing
